bullet  General Notes:

The Newports were a Shropshire family and the title related to the Hundreds of North and South Bradford in Shropshire not to the city in South Yorkshire.. The title of Baron Newport had been created for Sir Richard Newport (1570-1650) by Charles I in 1642 as he marched through Stafford. Sir Richard paid 6000 to purchase it. Richard married Rachel Leveson and their son, Francis Newport (1619-1708), became Lord Lieutenant of Shropshire after the Restoration. He fell out of favour in the time of James II but was back in favour with William of Orange who made him the 1st Earl of Bradford. He married Lady Diana Russell, the daughter of the 4th Earl of Bedford. Francis was also granted Shrewsbury Castle. Their son Richard was the 2nd Earl.
